        About ten men in every hundred suffer from color blindness in some way. Women are luckier; only about one in two hundred is affected (影响) in this matter. Perhaps, after all, it is safer to be driven by a woman!

    There are different forms of color blindness. In some cases a man may not be able to see deep red. He may think that red, orange and yellow are all shadows(阴影) of green. Sometimes a person cannot tell the difference between blue and green. In few cases an unlucky man may see everything in shades of green—a strange world indeed.

        Color blindness in human beings is a strange thing to explain. In a single eye there are millions of very small things called “cones”. These help us to see in a bright light and to tell difference between colors. There are also millions of “rods”, but these are used for seeing when it is near dark. They show us shape but no color.

        Some insects (昆虫) have favorite colors.Mosquitoes prefer blue to yellow. A red light will not attract insects, but a blue lamp will. In a similar way human also have favorite colors.Yet we are lucky. With the help of the cones in our eyes we can see many beautiful colors by day, and with the help of the rods we can see shapes at night. One day we may even learn more about the hidden colors around us.

    29. The passage is mainly about_______.            

    A.color blindness                      B. women being luckier than men  

    C. color and its surprising effects.         D. danger caused by color blindness

    30. According to the passage, with the help of the “cones”, we can_____.          

    A. tell different shapes                B. kill mosquitoes

    C. see in a weak light                 D. tell orange from yellow

    31. Which of the statements (陈述) about the color- blind is TRUE?

    A. None of them can see deep red

    B. None of them can tell the difference between blue and green.

    C. All of them see everything in shades of green. 

    D. Not all of them have the same problem in recognizing color.

    32. We can attract and kill mosquitoes by using a________.             

    A. red light          B. blue light        C. yellow light         D. green light

        Unlike most other holidays,the history of April Fools’ Day,sometimes called All Fools’ Day,is not totally clear.The only point in time that can be agreed on as the beginning of this tradition was 1582,in France.Before that year,the New Year was celebrated for eight days,beginning on March 25.The celebration reached the highest point on April 1.With the reform of the calendar under Charles 1X,the the Gregorian calendar(公历,阳历)was introduced,and New Year’s Day was moved to January 1.

        However,because in those days communications were not as developed as they are today,many people did not receive the news for several years.Some people refused to accept the new calendar and continued to celebrate the New Year on April 1.These backward people were considered”fools” by other people.They were often sent on “fools” errands(徒劳无益的工作)or were made the targets of jokes.

        This developed,over time,into a tradition of playing a trick on someone on the first day of April.The tradition eventually spread to England and Scotland in the eighteenth century.It was later introduced to the American colonies of both the Britain and France.April Fools’ Day thus developed into an international fun feast,so to speak,with different nationalities specializing in their own kind of humor at the expense of their friends and families.

    It is widely known that any English conversation begins with The Weather. Such a fixation with the weather finds expression in Dr. Johnson’s famous comment that “When two English meet, their first talk is of weather.” Though Johnson’s observation is as accurate now as it was over two hundred years ago, most commentators(评论员) fail to come up with a convincing explanation for this English weather-speak.

    Bill Bryson, for example, concludes that, as the English weather is not at all exciting, the obsession with it can hardly be understood. He argues that” To an outsider, the most striking thing about the English weather is that there is not very much of it.” Simply, the reason is that the unusual and unpredictable weather is almost unknown in the British Isles.

    Jeremy Paxman, however, disagrees with Bryson, arguing that the English weather is by nature attractive. Bryson is wrong, he says, “because the English preference for the weather has nothing to do with the natural phenomena(现象).” The interest is less in the phenomena themselves, but in uncertainty.” According to him, the weather in England is very changeable and uncertain and it attracts the English as well as the outsider.

    Bryson and Paxman stand for common misconceptions about the weather-speak among the English. Both commentators, somehow, are missing the point. The English weather conversation is not really about the weather at all. English weather-speak is a system of signs, which is developed to help the speakers overcome the natural reserve and actually talk to each other. Everyone knows conversations starting with weather-speak are not requests for weather data. Rather, they are routine greetings, conversation starters or the blank “fillers”, In other words, English weather-speak is a means of social bonding.

    28. The author mentions Dr. Johnson’s comment to show that________.

    A. most commentators agree with Dr. Johnson

    B. the comment was accurate two hundred years ago

    C. English conversations usually start with the weather  

    D. Dr. Johnson is famous for his weather observation

    29. What does the underlined word “obsession” most probably refer to?

    A. A social trend.                                  B. An emotional state.

    C. A historical concept.                            D. An unknown phenomenon.

    30. According to the passage, Jeremy Paxman believes that________.

    A. Bill Bryson has little knowledge of the weather

    B. there is nothing special about the English weather]

    C. the English weather attracts people to the British Isles

    D. English people talk about the weather for its uncertainty

    31. What is the author’s main purpose of writing the passage?

    A. To explain what English weather-speak is about.

    B. To analyze misconceptions about the English weather.

    C. To find fault with both Bill Bryson and Jeremy Paxman.

    D. To convince people that the English weather is changeable.

    Do you drink water that's been left sitting out overnight or even for another day? Have you noticed it tastes different?

    Tap water that has been left to sit out slowly begins to acquire(获得) off taste. Many people think that this is because of microorganisms. But that's not what makes old water taste not fresh. For that we can thank carbon dioxide. After about 12 hours, tap water starts to go flat as carbon dioxide in the air starts to mix with the water in the glass, lowering its pH and giving it an off taste. But it's most likely safe to drink.

    However, back to those microorganisms. If you use a dirty glass day after day, there is more of a chance of bacteria making themselves known; a risk that increases if you share the glass with another mouth as well. But assuming(假设) you use a fresh glass every few days, you probably won't have a problem unless the glass has been touched by dirty fingers, and especially if those dirty fingers went unwashed after using the bathroom.

    As for plastic water bottles that have been left out in the sun or in the car, step away from the bottle, warns Dr. Kellogg Schwab, director of the Johns Hopkins University Water Institute. "A chemical called bisphenol-A, or BPA, along with other things used to make plastic can leach(过滤) into your water if the bottle heats up or sits in the sun," he explains. BPA, as you probably know, has been linked to everything from heart disease to cancer. Schwab also adds that plastic used for commercial bottled water isn't meant to be washed or refilled, so use only one time and recycle. Or don't buy them at all; use refillable water bottles instead.

    24. Tap water begin to acquire an off taste because of______ .

    A. the glass                                               B. BPA

    C. carbon dioxide                            D. the microorganism

    25. According to Paragraph 2, tap water that's been left sitting out for 12 hours____.

    A. contains few microorganisms        B. is still safe to drink

    C. tastes better                                   D. is most likely undrinkable

    26. What should we do with plastic water bottles that have been left out in the sun or in the car?

    A. Throw them away.                        B. Clean them and use them again.

    C. Use them after they cool down.  .          D. Refill them with fresh water

    27. Which of the following is true about BPA?

    A. It is safe for people to use.                   B. It is a kind of new material.

    C. It is the main material to make plastic.  D. It can cause great harm to people.

    It’s hard to find Alice Munro in the media. Even after she won the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature, the Canadian writer just appeared for a quick interview and then dropped out of sight. On Dec 29, she still didn't seek the spotlight(聚光灯)when she was named one of the five Women of the Year by the Financial Times.

    In Munro's eyes, ordinary lives always hide larger dramas. So she records what we casually think of as the everyday actions of normal people. She often focuses on life in her hometown, a small village in Ontario which she is most familiar with. She writes about the ordinary things in the villagefox forming, trees filled in the Ontario wilderness, poor country alcohol and long last illnesses. Above all, she talks about girls and women who have seemingly ordinary lives but struggle against daily misfortune.

       She has a special talent for uncovering the extraordinary in the ordinary. These are ordinary people, ordinary stories, but she has the magic. Her precise language, depth of detail and the logic of her storytelling have made her stories inviting.

    Runaway, one of Munro’s representative works, is a good example of her writing style. One of the stories centers on the life of an ordinary woman Carla, who lives in a small Canadian town with her husband Clark. The story slowly forms a picture of Carla, trapped in a bad marriage, her unhappiness building into desperation until she decided to flee. The story of Carla is a story of the power and betrayals of love. It is about lost children and lots of chances that we can all find in life. There is pain beneath the surface, like a needle in the heart.

     Since she published her first collection of short stories in 1968, Munro has won many awards, with the Nobel Prize being her biggest honor. On Oct. 10, 2013, the Nobel Prize committee named Munro the “master of the contemporary short story”.

    21.  We learn from Paragraph 1 that Alice Munro_________.

    A. didn't get on well with the media          B. remained modest though very successful

    C. didn’t value the title of Women of the Year 
    D. was surprised at winning the Nobel Prize

    22.  What makes Alice Munro’s stories fascinating according to the text?

    A. Her writing techniques.                  B. The complicated plots.   

    C. The humorous language.                   D. Her rich imagination.

    23.  What is the text mainly about?

    A. Alice Munro and her hometown.            B. The awards Alice Munro won.

    C. Alice Munro and her writing style.           D. Alice Munro’s literary life.

     Parents who help their children with homework may actually be bringing down their school grades. Other forms of parental involvement, including volunteering at school and observing a child's class, also fail to help, according to the most recent study on the topic.
        The findings challenge a key principle of modern parenting where schools expect them to act as partners in their children's education. Previous generations concentrated on getting children to school on time, fed, dressed and ready to learn.
        Kaith Robinson, the author of the study, said, “I really don't know if the public is ready for this but there are some ways parents can be involved in their kids' education that leads to declines in their academic performance. One of the things that was consistently negative was parents' help with homework.” Robinson suggested that may be because parents themselves struggle to understand the task. “They may either not remember the material their kids are studying now, or in some cases never learnt it themselves, but they're still offering advice.”
        Robinson assessed parental involvement performance and found one of the most damaging things a parent could do was to punish their children for poor marks. In general, about 20% of parental involvement was positive, about 45% negative and the rest statistically insignificant.
        Common sense suggests it was a good thing for parents to get involved because “children with good academic success do have involved parents”, admitted Robinson. But he argued that this did not prove parental involvement was the root cause of that success. “A big surprise was that Asian-American parents whose kids are doing so well in school hardly involved. They took a more reasonable approach, conveying to their children how success at school could improve their lives.”
    28. The underlined expression “parental involvement” in Paragraph 1 probably means __________.
      A. parents' participation in children's education        B. parents' expectation on children's health
      C. parents' control over children's life                D. parents' plan for children's future 
    29. What is the major finding of Robinson's study?
      A. Modern parents raise children in a more scientific way.
      B. Punishing kids for bad marks is mentally damaging.
      C. Parents are not able to help with children’s homework.  
      D. Parental involvement is not so beneficial as expected.
    30. The example of Asian-American parents implies that parents should __________.
      A. spend more time improving their own lives    B. set a specific life goal for their children
      C. help children realize the importance of schooling

    D. take a more active part in school management

    A recent documentary produced by the British Broadcasting Corporation has caused a stir in China and in the UK. 
        The documentary, titled Are Our Kids Tough Enough? Chinese School revolves (
    ...为主题) around five Chinese teachers who are sent to teach 50 UK teens at a school in Hampshire.
        The teachers instruct the students for a month. The pupils are then tested, and the results are compared to the ones of those who have continued in the regular UK education system. The idea is to see if the Chinese method improves academic performance.
        The Chinese teachers use their own teaching methods but receive strong resistance from the students. A clip from the documentary online shows some problems, with Chinese teachers calling their students lazy and lacking in discipline(
    纪律), while the students say the high pressure and harsh teachers are driving them crazy. 
        This has aroused a new debate in both China and the UK, with some arguing the teenagers need more regulation and discipline. Others say Chinese methods encourage rote learning instead of independent thinking. For instance, Chinese language teachers should do more than pass on knowledge about words and characters. They should inspire students, helping them feel the sentiment from Chinese literature. This is a higher level of teaching. 
        Yang Dongping, dean of the 21st Century Education Research Institute, says, “The Chinese teaching methods are designed to strictly train the majority. Foreign teaching methods, however, are more natural and relaxing, and designed to inspire students' interest in learning. Education methods are based on culture. That is why a successful education method in one place may not work that well when simply 'transplanted' into another place.”
        Yang Dongping says, “The documentary does reflect some problems rooted in traditional Chinese teaching methods. Nobel Prize winner, Yang Zhenning, gave a very fair comment on this issue. He said the Chinese-style education method works for most ordinary qualified students effectively, helping them reach high standards. However, it may compromise the training for high-potential outstanding students.”
    24. What is the purpose of 50 UK teens' being instructed by five Chinese teachers?
       A. To test the effectiveness of Chinese teaching method.
       B. To help the school improve their teaching efficiency.
       C. To do some practical research into the UK education system.
       D. To test the intelligence of the UK teens.
    25. What's the meaning of the underlined work "harsh" in the fourth paragraph?
       A. Very attractive.       B. Quite friendly.        C. Rather cold.       D. Extremely strict.
    26. According to the report, Chinese teaching methods should focus more on ________.  
       A. passing on knowledge                      B. encouraging independent thinking
       C. regulation and discipline                 D. training the majority strictly
    27. Yang Zhenning's comment implies that traditional Chinese teaching methods are ________. 
       A. good for Chinese students of all levels           B. helpful to students of high standards
       C. good for most ordinary qualified students     D. helpful to high-potential outstanding students

    In life, we will succeed and fail often for reasons that are entirely out of our control. For instance, we can be incredibly nice and love someone deeply, and they may not love us back. We can work harder than anyone else in the office and still not be promoted to management. We can eat healthy food, exercise and stay away from alcohol and cigarettes, and still get sick.

     The bottom line is that life is not fair.

     That is a tough pill to swallow for many of us. As a result, some people shut down after being hit by even one unfair blow from life. They can’t handle the fact that our efforts don’t always get the results that we expect. But if we let life’s unfairness defeat us, we will never receive the beautiful blessings (幸事) that life has in store for us.

     For example, my first marriage ended in divorce. To me, it felt very unfair. I had worked hard to be a good wife and mother. However, no matter what I did, I could not make the relationship work.

     I could have been shut down by that experience. I could have decided that if one person didn’t appreciate me as a wife, then no one would. I could have given up. But I knew that I wanted to be married. I knew that I wanted to experience traditional family life. So I didn’t let one seemingly unfair experience stop me from believing that I could one day be happily married. And then one day, I met this kind, thoughtful, generous man with whom I now have a wonderful friendship and marriage. But that wouldn’t have happened if I had decided to give up after one failed marriage.

     What I’ve learned over the years is that we can do all the things that deserve a good outcome, but get bad things in return instead.

     When we are faced with life’s seeming unfairness, our faith needs to jump in. When life doesn’t go according to plan, we have to let go of the outcome that we are looking forward to and keep trying, working hard and doing the right thing. Please don’t be discouraged. Accept that life is neither fair nor straightforward. And by knowing that if we remain confident, we can drive our unfair experiences away and use them for our benefit.

    27. We can learn from the first three paragraphs that ______.

     A. life doesn’t often turn out the way we expect

     B. the author thinks life should reward us for our efforts

     C. unsatisfactory results simply mean your effort is not enough

     D. people should focus on the process rather than the outcomes

    28. The author wrote about her unsuccessful marriage to ______.

     A. complain about the unfairness of her life and marriage

     B. tell readers how she met her second husband and became happily married

     C. express how proud she is for not being shut down by a blow from life

     D. show that we need to have faith and continue working for our goals

    29. When we encounter unfairness in life, the author suggests we ______.

     a. do nothing but accept them

     b. be confident with ourselves

     c. keep doing what we should do

     d. find out what has gone wrong

      A. ab   B. ad      C. bc         D. cd

    30. The author wrote the article mainly to ______.

     A. share her experiences of unfairness in life

     B. tell us how to deal with life’s seeming unfairness

     C. tell us that life has beautiful blessings in store for us

     D. explain why life seems neither fair nor straightforward

    Following news of the potential for life on the recently-discovered TRAPPIST-1 system, there may be another competitor ready to take its place.

     With the help of the Cassini spacecraft, NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) scientists have picked up the first evidence that chemical reactions are taking place deep below the surface of Enceladus, Saturn’s (土星的) sixth-largest moon. This means that there could be life in Enceladus’ warm underground seas.

     An early study found that liquid oceans exist miles below Enceladus’ surface. But to reveal what is happening down there, scientists must rely on the plumes () of water that spray (喷射) through cracks in Enceladus’ icy surface. In October 2015, NASA sent Cassini into a deep dive into one of the plumes.

     Cassini’s findings, published on April 13 in the journal Science, showed that hydrogen () not only exists on Enceladus, but is also responsible for a chemical reaction between hot rocks and water in the ocean beneath its surface.

     This same process on Earth provides energy for entire ecosystems around volcanic vents (火山口). There, tiny creatures are able to survive without sunlight, using hydrogen and carbon dioxide as fuel in a process known as “methanogenesis (甲烷生成)”.

    The discovery of this chemical energy source on Enceladus means it could be a very good candidate to host life.

    “Confirmation (确认) that the chemical energy for life exists within the ocean of a small moon of Saturn is an important milestone (里程碑) in our search for habitable (可居住的) worlds beyond Earth,” Linda Spilker, Cassini project scientist at NASA, told the Daily Mail.

     Alien life was once only thought possible on habitable planets within the “Goldilocks zone” – far enough from our sun not to be a fireball, but not so far as to be freezing.

     Research on Enceladus is still in its early stages, but the recent findings have important meanings for future exploration.

    “At present, we know of only one genesis (诞生) of life, the one that led to us,” David Rothery, professor of planetary geosciences (行星与地球科学) from the Open University in the UK, told The Telegraph.

    “If we knew that life had started independently in two places in our solar system, then we could be pretty confident that life also got started on some of the tens of billions of planets and moons around other stars in our galaxy,” he said.

    24. What is the article mainly about?

     A. The connection between the TRAPPIST-1 system and Enceladus.

     B. The potential for life on Saturn’s moon, Enceladus.

     C. The chemical energy source on Enceladus.

     D. Scientists’ constant search for life in the solar system.

     25. Scientists assume that there could be life on Enceladus because ______.

     A. there is evidence of a warm ocean under Enceladus’ surface

     B. hot rocks and water have been discovered on Enceladus

     C. hydrogen discovered on Enceladus could be a chemical energy source

     D. the entire ecosystems of Enceladus are somewhat similar to those of Earth

    26. According to David Rothery, the recent findings on Enceladus could mean that ______.

     A. there is only one genesis of life in our galaxy

     B. there could be many habitable planets, but all in the “Goldilocks zone”

     C. it won’t be long before scientists find a habitable planet beyond Earth

         D. alien life could exist on some other planets if it existed on Enceladus

    It used to be a matter of fact when Peter Pan – a character from James Matthew Barrie’s 1911 book – said: “All children, except one, grow up.”

    But this “fact” doesn’t seem to apply to today’s world anymore.

     According to the NPD Group, a US market research company, sales of toys to adults in the UK increased by more than 20 percent in 2016, three times the pace of the children’s toy market itself. These toys ranged from puzzles and Lego building sets to vehicle models and action figures. And more than half of the sales came from millennials – people born between the 1980s and 2000s.

    “Adults of the 21st century are channeling (疏导) their inner child, one toy at a time,” commented website Koreaboo. This is also why these adults are sometimes referred to as “kidults”.

    According to Frederique Tutt, an analyst at NPD, the motivation of these grown-ups is to escape the stress of today’s fast-paced world. They are driven toward the more immediate pleasures brought by toys than those brought by, say, getting a promotion, which is far less easy to achieve.

    “It reminds me of the playful side of life,” Rob Willner, a 25-year-old PhD student in the UK, told The Telegraph when talking about his love for Lego, which he said brings him both comfort and entertainment.

     Despite this, some social scientists see the trend as disturbing. To Frank Furendi, a professor at the University of Kent in the UK, the fact that so many adults are pursuing “the thrills (刺激) of youth” is the evidence that “adulthood has got nothing attractive about it anymore”, he told The New York Times.u “That’s actually quite sad.”

    But scientists are probably just worrying too much. According to Canadian comic book artist Todd McFarlane, collecting toys could simply be a way for people to express their individuality (个性).

    “It’s just pop culture stuff. It’s stuff that says, ‘I like a little of this and I like a little of that’,” he told ABC News. “[It’s] no big deal.”

    So now that over 100 years have passed since Peter Pan, perhaps it’s time to introduce a new “fact”, as stated in the tagline (品牌宣传词) of the UK fashion brand KIDULT: “Growing old is mandatory (强制性的), but growing up is optional.”

    21. The author mentions Peter Pan in the text mainly to ______.

     A. show the influence of the character on millennials

     B. explore the similarities Peter Pan and millennials share

     C. lead up to the trend of millennials’ love for toys

     D. analyze what has made many millennials refuse to grow up

    22. Why do many adults feel like collecting toys, according to Frederique Tutt?

     A. They find it brings them both comfort and inspiration.

     B. They consider it a way to relieve stress.

     C. They want to make up for the pleasures they missed during childhood.

      Parents have widely different views on the problem of pocket money. Four new fathers were asked this question and this is how they answered. 

           Ashish Khanna: Although many argue that pocket money helps develop children’s sense of value, I don’t agree. I wouldn’t give my child any pocket money. First of all, I never got pocket money and I seem to have a good value for money. If my child ever needed something and I felt it was a reasonable (合理的) request, I would buy it for him.

           Sharad Sanghi: No, I wouldn’t give my child pocket money because I don’t want to create the perception (观念) of “her” money and “my” money. Besides, if I refuse to buy her something that I think is bad for her, she may buy it with her pocket money on the sly. In this way, I would lose control over my child’s requests. I feel it also encourages children to care more about money than anything else. I don’t want my child to start judging other children by the amount of money or pocket money they have.

           Rakesh Shah: Yes, I would give my child pocket money because I feel that children should learn to spend money properly. I will give him a fixed amount every month and if he spends the money before the month is over, he will learn a lesson and not spend money so freely. He will learn what his limitations (限制) are and feel the difficulty when he has to pay for something that is over his own pocket.

           Rajiv Patel: Yes, I would give my child pocket money because it is important that he learns to manage money. But I would not give it to him on a weekly or monthly basis. He would have to earn it. If he helped me finish some of my jobs or helped his mother with housework, I would reward him. This helps him realize that “money does not grow on trees” and it requires hard work to earn money.

    24. Ashish Khanna may agree that _____.

      A. he was given too much pocket money when young

      B. he can take much control of his child by money

      C. he will buy anything he thinks his child really needs

      D. pocket money helps children develop a good value for money

    25. The underlined phrase “on the sly” in Paragraph 3 is the closest in meaning to “_____”.

      A. for free                  B. at a lower price           

      C. happily                     D. secretly

    26. Who would give his child pocket money every month?

      A. Ashish Khanna.         B. Sharad Sanghi.

      C. Rakesh Shah.               D. Rajiv Patel.

    27. What do Rakesh Shah and Rajiv Patel have in common?

      A. They want their children to learn to manage money from an early age.

      B. They ask their children to get pocket money by working.

      C. They teach their children the difficulty of making money.

      D. They allow their children to spend money freely.

Almost all cities offer a recycling bin (垃圾箱) for these items. If you put them in the recycling bin instead of throwing them away, you will be on the path to save the earth.

    Most middle school students in the U.S. go to school for at least 990 hours a year. Beginning this fall, some schools in Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, and Tennessee will add 300 hours to the school year.

    Supporters of a longer school year say that kids who spend more time in class get better grades. They worry that kids in countries who spend more time at school or studying are better prepared to start college or find jobs after graduation.

    “Schools need more teaching time if they are going to prepare students to be more successful in the 21st century.” says Luis Ubinas of the Ford foundation, which supports a longer year.

    Jennifer Davis, president of the National Center on Time & Learning, says that many schools use the added time to provide extra help, like computer science and music.

    However, some people don’t think adding time to the school year means that students will learn more or get better grades. A recent study by the Center for Public Education found that kids in some countries, including Finland and Japan, do better than U.S. students on standardized tests even though they spend less time in the classroom.

    Other people argue that adding time to the school year is too expensive. With towns across the country facing budget cuts(预算削减), many schools simply can’t afford to pay teachers to work the extra hours.

    Tina Bruno, the director of the Coalition for a Traditional School Calendar, says that kids need time to play sports, take part in after-school activities, and learn new things on their own.

    “Before lengthening(延长) class time and taking away outside learning chances,” Bruno says , “let’s make the most of every minute in their present school day.”

    32. This fall, students in Colorada, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, and Tennessee will _______.

    A. get better grades

    B. have more class time

    C. have a chance to find jobs

    D. meet friends from Finland and Japan

    33. What is Lui Ubinas’ attitude towards adding time to the school year?

    A. He doubts it.

    B. He agree with it.

    C. He is worried about it.

    D. He doesn’t care about it.

    34. According to the text, Tina Bruno thinks it is most important to _______.

    A. pay the teachers much money to work the extra hours

    B. add class time to help students to get better grades

    C. allow students to go outside to learn new things

    D. make full use of students’ current school time

    35. What does this text mainly discuss?

      A. More time in school?            B. Better grades in school?

    C. Start school or find jobs?         D. Learn more outside class?

    Rice farmers in Thailand are facing a large drop in income because of the drop in the price of rice throughout Asia. At the same time, costs to grow the crop(庄稼are increasing. Farmers are not sure who to ask for help. Many of them are having a difficult time this year. Some of them may not even make enough money to pay their costs to grow the crop.

    Lung Chai is a rice farmer in Chiang Mai. He says the situation has affected all farmers. He says he is losing money, but does not know who to talk to about it. “No one would hear our voice.” He says.

    Thailand faces strong competition for rice exports(出口)from India and Vietnam. This is partly because of lower pay in neighboring countries and large expected harvests this year.

    A recent study paid for by the Bank of Thailand said Thai farmers should be trained to portend market changes, so they would know what to do next. Singhachi Boonyayotin is a senior director of the Bank of Thailand. He said Thailand should produce other products besides white rice to compete with Vietnam and Cambodia.

    Wachirajak Nin-khuntod wanted to help his father who is a rice farmer. He began selling crops on the Internet as a way to increase income. He said, “My parents didn’t believe that I would be able to sell rice on social media, as most farmers believe we can sell rice to middlemen or rice factories only.” Now, he says, his parents know that they can sell their own rice without a middleman.

    Perhaps other farmers in Thailand can also do that. It might be a good way to help them out.

    28. What is troubling rice farmers now?

       A. Their harvests greatly dropped this year.

       B. They can’t find rice factories to sell the crop.

       C. They are having a difficult time in growing crops.

       D. They make too little or no money out of their harvests.

    29. Which of the following can replace the underlined word “portend” in paragraph 4?

       A. predict            B. cause        C. prevent       D. affect

    30. How did Wachirajak Nin-khuntod’s parents respond to his idea at first?

       A. They quite doubted it.               B. They stopped worrying.

       C. They greatly supported it.            D. They were strongly against it.

    31. What may be the suggestions to help Thai farmers according to the text?

       ①Selling crops online.                 

    ②Growing different kinds of crops.

       ③Reducing crop prices to sell them.  

    ④Gaining information on market changes.

     ⑤Reducing rice exports to other countries.

    A.     ①②③        B. ①③⑤      C. ①②④       D. ②③④

      Sammy and his elder sister Marie visited their grandparents at their farm. Sammy picked up a slingshot(弹弓) to play with. He practiced in the woods but he could never hit the goal. Getting a little discouraged, he headed back for lunch. As he was walking back, he saw Grandma’s pet duck.

    Humans and many other mammals have unusually efficient internal temperature regulating systems that automatically maintain stable core body temperatures (核心体温) in cold winters and warm summers. In additionpeople have developed cultural patterns and technologies that help them adjust to extremes of temperature and humidity(湿度)

    In very cold climatesthere is a constant danger of developing hypothermia(低体温)which is a life threatening drop in core body temperature to below normal levels. The normal temperature for humans is about 37.0.Howeverdifferences in persons and even the time of day can cause it to be as much as 6℃ higher or lower in healthy individuals. It is also normal for core body temperature to be lower in elderly people. Hypothermia begins to occur when the core body temperature drops to 34.4℃.Below 29.4℃the body cools more rapidly because its natural temperature regulating system usually fails. The rapid decline in core body temperature is likely to result in death. Howeverthere have been rare cases in which people have been saved after their temperatures had dropped to 13.915.6.This happened in 1999 to a Swedish woman who was trapped under an ice sheet in freezing water for 80 minutes. She was found unconsciousnot breathingand her heart had stopped beatingyet she was eventually saved despite the fact that her temperature had dropped to 13.7.

    In extremely hot climates or as a result of uncontrollable infectionscore body temperatures can rise to equally dangerous levels. This is hypothermia. Life threatening hypothermia typically starts in humans when their temperatures rise to 40.641.7.Only a few days at this extraordinarily high temperature level is likely to result in the worsening of internal organs and death.

    13Why can humans keep stable body temperatures in different seasons?

    A. Because their bodies are unusually efficient.

    BBecause they experience different climates.

    CBecause they can adjust to cultural patterns and technologies.

    DBecause they have internal temperature regulating systems.

    14What does Paragraph 2 mainly discuss?

    A. The dangerous effects of hypothermia.

    BThe change of body temperature.

    CThe survival of the Swedish woman.

    DThe regulating systems of natural temperature.

    15What is the best title for the passage?

    ASurviving in an ice trap

    BGetting to know hypothermia

    CAdapting to climate extremes

    DChanging core body temperature

    There are only 24 hours in a daybut people can use the time wisely. In other wordseffective time management is important if you want to succeed.

    Knowing the importance of daily matters is the first step towards good time management. Write down the things that you want to do and organize them according to their level of importance. The important thing should be done first. If there are too many things that have to be done in one day, then you have to give up doing something that is less important on your list.

    Besides thisyou need to spend a specific amount of time doing all the activities you have written down and make sure you finish them on time. People often slow down in their work even though they know that time will never wait for them. Make sure you keep to your plan and finish the tasks one by one. Do not try to do too many things at once.

    Alsoyou can group similar activities together and do them one by one. For example, you can group all the tasks you need to do in the office together and do them while you're in office. Do all the tasks that have to be done in one place first, and then move to the next place to do the other tasks.

    The bad news is that time flies. The good news is that you're the pilot, said Michael Althsuler. Your future is in your handsso remember to invest your time wisely from today on.

    5Which of the following things should be done first?

    AThe most difficult things.               BThe most important things.

    CThe things that weren't done yesterday.              DThe things that take the least time.

    6Which of the following ideas would the author agree with?

    ANever give up doing the least important things.

    BSuccessful people can make a day last longer than 24 hours.

    CWriting down daily tasks is the first step towards success.

    DEffective time management can help one to succeed. 

    7The author quoted the words by Althsuler to say that         

    Ayou can manage your time wisely  Byou can't control time

       Commuting (乘车上下班) doesn’t have to be terrible. I used to hate jumping on the train or taking the bus, but not any longer now. I always have a book ready, or my iPod loaded up with materials for me to listen to. I’ve learned a lot while sitting on trains, buses and airplanes. Here are a few things you can do while commuting:

     1. Read a Book

        You may not have time to read books, but if you’re commuting and doing nothing, you’re wasting a good opportunity to get friendly with the interesting world of books. If you aren’t a good reader, it may feel hard to get started, but as you keep reading, you’ll find it more and more fun.

     2. Write

        If you’re eager to become a writer of any kind, you can carry a laptop, put on some music and start writing while sitting on the train or bus. If you don’t have a laptop, there are a lot of ways to find a really cheap one. If you’re only using it for writing and surfing the web, you don’t really need the best one.

     3. Listen

        If you’re commuting and can’t really read or write, you can always buy audio books and audio courses on many different topics. There really are no excuses to waste your commuting time.

     4. Learn a Language

        I’ve recently started learning Spanish and I am having a lot of fun doing it. Language learning can be fun. You don’t need to sit in school and study grammar to learn a language. If you can devote 30~60 minutes to a language per day, you will make progress. If you can do more, you will learn more.

        Commuting may at first seem boringbut when you really think about it, it’s an opportunity for you to do valuable things while the world passes you by.

    21. While commuting now the writer always makes use of the time to ________.

    A. write books

    C. prepare material for his iPod

    B. get some knowledge

    D. do some shopping

    22. While commuting reading books can help you ________.

    A. get more friends

    C. become a writer of any kind

    B. become a good reader

    D. make up more funny stories

    23. What does the underlined word “one” in Paragraph 3 probably refers to?

    A. Writer

    B. Bus

    C. Laptop

    D. Train
